Trinity Sunday

Mighty Creator, merciful and tender;
Jesus our Savior, co-eternal reigning;
Spirit all-kindly, Advocate, Defender,
Light never waning;

Trinity sacred, Unity unshaken;
Deity perfect, giving and forgiving,
Light of the angels, Life of the forsaken,
Hope of the living;

Maker of all things, all your creatures praise you;
Lo, all things serve you through the whole creation:
Hear us, Almighty, hear us as we raise you
Heart’s adoration.

To the all-ruling Triune God be glory:
Highest and greatest, help our souls' endeavor;
We, too, would praise you, giving honor worthy
Now and forever.

Latin, 10th cent.;
tr. Percy Dearmer, 1906; alt.
French church melody; Paris Antiphoner, 1619

Four Years Ago: Holy! Holy! Holy!

Three Years Ago: I bind unto myself today
